Plain Township trustee Louis Giavasis has received communication from Mark Okey (D - 61st which only includes the extreme eastern slice of Stark County), to wit:
I did recieve (sic) a letter from Representative Okey in support and he is polling other legislators to see if there is any interest in revisting SB 221.SB 221, what's that?
It is the bill that set up the mechanism for the likes of American Electric Power (locally, Ohio Power), First Energy (locally, Ohio Edison) to ask the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for rate increases and WHICH PROVIDES THAT THE UTILITIES HAVE A "VETO" POWER OVER PUCO MODIFICATION/REJECTION of the request.
SB 221 received "unanimous" support in the Ohio General Assembly which means, of course, no one read the bill. Who would allow an affected party to legislation to have a veto power of the action taken. This is like sentencing to jail then providing the key to the inmate.
Of course, we do have Oelslager on record as saying in effect "no way, Jose" in terms of taking the matter on. Oelslager defers to higher powers in the government of Ohio.
Otherwise, nothing from Schuring, Slesnick, Snitchler, and Shiavoni (also, only the eastern slice of Stark).
To the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT it speaks volumes to their constituents for "core" Stark County legislators to ignore a specific request to act.
Even Oelslager had to be buttonholed by Giavasis at a public event.
And elected officials wonder why the general public does not hold them in high esteem?
